for another take, unskewed polls.com, a way to reweight the polls-- the fox news poll has romney down 5 points and suggests romney it down. and one who was not a-- and a pollster for gary hart and so on, he wrote in great part, what the media are doing are newspapers are supposed to be broke, instead spending money on polls in virginia, ohio and florida where obama clearly is clobbering romney in terms of television buys, you're down 8 points in ohio must be losing nationwide. it's not wrong, but it's obviously to suggest that romney is a goner. >> rick: kirsten, do you agree we'll hear stories about a tightening of the race because the media want to generate ratings and sell newspapers and magazines or perhaps a guilt on part of the mainstream media maybe we should be covering this a little bit more fairly than we have been? >>pist-- i think that sometimes media polls can be a little cooked. i have a friend, he used to do it for one of the media organizations and used to say, ding, here, it's been cooked, here is what you wanted. but the thing is, nate silver did a good analysis of the polls
romney as a plutocrat, someone out of touch with the main stream and romney doubles down on obama's strategy with this video that came out. so they're in a real situation here and they've got a short time to right it. >> it's offensive if you unpack and think about it. what he's saying is we're all stupid. we don't remember that the polls have shown republicans up a lot. and secondly this idea that people in the media, if their personal views go one way, the product of the reporting goes another way. i don't think there's resonating with the public at all. if you go back to important media failures like the iraq war or the financial crisis, on iraq there may have been a lot of reporters who were personally skeptical but there was a collective media failure in the way they covered it. so the idea that someone's personal views are always going to represent them in what they write or how they report, i don't think that computes, i think you would have to be dumb or tuned out to buy the crap that paul ryan is peddling there. >> and then there's the question of who is the real arnold s
clear and very ronald reagan. for one mitt romney, that is all that this race comes down to. whether we can keep it simple and clear. after all the noise, leave voters understand that this election really comes down to. are you better off than you were four years ago. because that could make a compelling case. we will see next week in denver for the first day, october 3, we are back for each and everyone there every one there after we started, 8:00 p.m. eastern tim
. that is why we are seeing both candidates, both the president and mitt romney, will be down a lot. we saw mitt romney in pennsylvania but we likely will not see him again until wednesday. the same thing with the president. he will campaign in nevada on fund. both candidates are pulling up and doing a lot of debate prep because they know it is very high stakes for them. >>shepard: you can sense they have turned up the heat. i was listening to the sound bite that carl cameron read in the last block. a lot of republicans have been saying, go harder, go harder, go harder, mitt romney. he was going harder right there. you heard what he was saying about the president. the president things the killing of the diplomat is a "been in -- "bump in the road." it is a turning up of the volume. >>guest: that is ironic. in the last week there has been a bit of a reversal in what voters thing of mitt romney on terrorism versus the president. for a long-term it was the president's number one extent. the polls have reversed. on the same point, the polls have shown a little bit of an increase for the president on
hands down every time. >> bill: if you notice the media, all they do is attack romney. >> yeah. >> bill: that's all they do. they don't ever go over obama's record in any way, shape or form. i said in 2008 journalism is dead. it's beyond. now they're an extension. nbc being the worst of them. >> the legacy of the failure of the dead journalists, for lack of a better term, or journalism is dead is what we see now. an uninformed populace. this is the real problem in america. look at world history, our history. when we're not politically informed we're at the mercy of that bumper sticker slogan. >> bill: see, this president lies. this president lies. >> yes, he does. he outright lies. >> bill: they lie and get away with it. >> they lie and get away with it, because really my coma toes hamster has more life than the media, more ability to ask a question. the com comatose hamster. >> it was widespread at the dnc. folks couldn't answer. >> there are a lot of people out there, though, that know the truth. >> bill: but it's us, that's it. >> well, it's up to us. >> bill: coming up, prominent po
the polls, i would say probably romney is down by 1, 1 1/2 at this point. >> agreed. >> bill: but i would say the debates are crucial. and i would say that the polls are based on a model that will not exist this year. especially after what we saw in 2010. you'd think they would have adjusted. >> turnout is everything. turnout in key states is critically important. in ohio, the obama ground game will be very good. they'll have a ton of union support. >> bill: what about the romney ground game? >> i checked on it today. by their account, they feel very strong going into it. they realize -- i mean, the romney people aren't saying, we're up by 4 or 5 points in these polls, but they're saying when the media writes every day that governor romney has lost the race because the polls say so, might as well not have an election, that they're wrong. >> don't take your election coverage from the establishment media. >> i didn't. i'm telling you what they said. >> don't let them dictate -- >> bill: i just watch you, imus and fox all day. >> really, in 40 years in america, i don't think i've ever seen t
romney hunkered down in washington on final debate preparation and president obama on the campaign trail in the swing state of nevada. for now, the strong sense of optimism from team romney. vice-presidential nominee, congressman paul ryan in an interesting brushed aside polls showing president obama leading in several key state telling anchor chris wallace, governor romney will win come november. and one of his most outspoken supporters, new jersey governor chris christie, also making a bold prediction that governor romney will do very well and his performance could change the whole race. here is governor christy from earlier today. >> he's going to come in wednesday night and have his vision for america and he's to contrast what his view is and the president's record is and the president's view for the future and the race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> harris: we'll kick off our coverage with campaign carl cameron. and republicans are trying to draw a distinction betweening mr. obama and the republicans leading up to wednesday night. >> they have and mitt romney has be
, governor romney arrived at boston headquarters to prep. landing in colorado where the debate show downs takes place, anchor special report bret baier. he'll join me with his take. some including the vice-presidential nominee, paul ryan, says a debate could change the game. >> it's possible. you have some columnists writing in this is the super bowl of politics and debates are because the political world and even folks who have been paying attention to politics start to listen and they watch, especially the first date. and standing the challengers standing alongside the president of the united states, confronting some things you've only seen confronted on commercials, that's an opportunity for the challenger to make a mark. >> however, in the big picket, can it change the dynamic completely? i don't know. you have to, you know, depending on races past, one debate doesn't really do it, and it's a series of debates, it's a series of things that happen after a debate. you heard governor chris christie on meet the press today, saying that thursday morning, there will be a different kind of r
say the reason mr. romney is way down is because the screen that the pollsters use heavily favors the democrat. and in the last month or so, some polls had as many as 10% more democrats polled than republicans. i sent an e-mail to scott rasmussen yesterday and i asked what the breakdown was on how many republicans and democrats he does right now because many regard him as the most accurate. currently rasmussen polls 38% democrat. 36% republican. and 2026% -- 26% independent. so democrats, by two points in the rasmussen poll. >> gretchen: it's interesting because i think this story becomes bigger because what do these poll results do to the psyche of the american public when they continue to see these polls? is there some sort of a subliminal message there that if you keep seeing obama on top, obama on top, obama on top, you know, but it's worth asking that bigger question because it's more, i think, than just these daily numbers. i think psychologically, there is a big question there as well. dick morris weighed in on this earlier on our show. >> these pollsters are using the 2008
, that is the conventional wisdom and if numbers are down, mitt romney should assume they are correct and run from behind obama campaign should assume they are wrong and race is closer than they indicate. back to you guys. >> doug, luzader, thank you. >> and before you leave the house this morning, get your first weather. some are waking toup stormy weather. >> we are seeing showers in the u.s.. west coast fairly dry and will remain that way across the central plains and ohio river valley and northeast and midatlantic we are seeing showers and thunderstorms. don't think we will see a severe weather outbreak but we could see the potential for rain and heavy thunderstorms in portions of texas and oklahoma and colorado and kansas. look at your attaches. we have a bound rye and cooler dryer air north . boundary warm and humid sultry air and feels like summer time in dallas. and 79 in kansas 73 and 81 in los angeles. if you are traveling today. not to bad in the airports. light showers possible for boston and new york. but looking good for memphis and dallas. you could see a thunderstorm later on today. and l
said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >> my pitch to voters is simple. we can't afford four more years of barak obama. we can barely afford four more months. if we have four more years of barak obama, we can't wait four years for people to find jobs or our houses to be worth what we paid for them. we can't wait four years for our kids to find job when is they graduate college. we can't wait for four more years. we can't afford it. >> marco rubio told me he thinks mitt romney, having a chance tomorrow night for the first time ever to be on the same stage with the president of the united states in his words, will crystallize the choice for voters. i think that's about the only thing the obama camp agrees with as well. >> we're about to get going on this, thanks. >>> shepard smith and the fox report in studio b teams are live in denver tomorrow night for the big debate. you can also watch bret baier and megyn kelly in prime time, just tick before 9
's a drag. they are making me do my homework. >> reporter: while romney aides continue to play down expectations for the debate, new jersey governor chris christie continued to ramp them up on monday. >> it's a huge night. had a bad couple of weeks, and we want to turn this around, and if you want to turn it around, you've got to perform on the biggest stage. >> reporter: speaking of turning around, a slew of national polls have come out in the last couple of days all showing the same thing. mitt romney inching back up, only a few points behind, down anywhere from two to four points. what's interesting here about the numbers, savannah is, president obama's numbers sort of locked in place at 49. the fluidity is in mitt romney's number. >> chuck todd in denver this mornings thank you. >>> bill o'reilly is the host of "the o'riley factor" and author of the new book "killing camelot," in stores today. >> nice to see you. >> i've heard you say on your show polls don't really matter until after the debates which i take it to mean you do think these debates are incredibly important. >> fro
said i ended the war in iraq. how he is binding down afghanistan. from that premise he is suggesting to people that mitt romney just might start up again because he is advised by the same people that got us into the war in iraq. >> paul: and a lot of people don't like the long years of war. how fair is the charge? >> i think people are ready to be responsive to that message. the problem is chaos adores vacuums and we are creating a vacuum in the middle east and iran. it is being created by president obama. mitt romney makes a good case. what we might end up in a war it's the policies of president obama in southeast asia and pakistani and afghanistan and in the middle east. >> patti ann:. >> paul: when you say creating a vacuum. since we left iraq and it is winding down but we didn't leave any troops there. we are staying out of syria. then, of course, the biggest problem, brett, is iran? >> you have to ask yourself is this a president that says we're going to have any more wars in middle east, how about con sunltd go israel, netanyahu saying. >> paul: 90% on their way to a nuclear bo
mitt romney turn this race upside down against the polls as the polls now say? chris christie said he can do it and guess what? mitt romney has done it before. going to show you what happened back in 2002 in a moment. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. have more fiber than other leading brands. they're the better way to enjoy your fiber. >>> he's mibehind in the polls. and voters just seem to like his opponent better. if you believe those polls. there's no question he's got a steep hill to climb, but guess what? he has been down this road before. and he won an election coming out of it. i want to take you back decades and indulge me. mitt romney, a republican candidate for governor in bluer than blue massachusetts. in mere weeks he went to a five-point winner on election night. and you know something? th
romney would do well and the race will turn upside down come thursday morping he said yesterday. >> eric: he was going and some of the other surrogates were saying let's manage and expect low on the debates. but chris christie said the debate will be a game changer. thursday morning clear choice and new campaign started on tuesday morning christie saying it was tough talk for the new jersey governor. >> gretchen: if i were woon on the romney camp i would have him saying that. it grabs head lines and the attitude that people feel is missing. >> eric: where is the proof? you say you arut canning the deficit and create four million jobs. give us ideas. we haven't heard them. >> steve: head line is that the president is lying in his ads. he said they don't hold the president accountable in the main stream med yampt -- media . rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for
the top down by mitt romney. >> now, one of the things about barack obama that you know from having worked so closely with him is that sometimes he can be a little professorial, not to put down professors, but in a debate you have to think about the clock and think about the punchy line. is it a challenge for his current team to get him to speak in sound bites? >> well look, i used to joke with him it takes him 30 seconds to clear his throat sometimes. and look, i think -- look there's no doubt that, you know, you've got a very small window of time and brevity is certainly important and as i said earlier, andrea, the president hasn't done these formats in four years. mitt romney has done these pretty recently as part of 20 republican debates, but look, i have no doubt that the president will be well prepared and look, i don't actually think this debate is going to be decided by some snappy zinger or snappy sound bite. i think the american people, particularly the undecided voters that you, chris and mark were talking about, are really looking for these candidates to discuss what they want
closing down shop. mrs. ann romney will join us tomorrow night. you don't want to miss that. make sure gou to greta wire.com and let us know what you thought about tonight's show. go to greta wire.com. time in cable news kicks off right now. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight -- >> the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president has not drawn us further away from the nuke leer round of attack, iran is closer to having a weapon. >> bill: is president obama weak or strong in protecting americans from the iranian nuclear threat? we'll hear both sides so you can decide. >> i want you to remember that the house they were standing in, the house my family has the privilege of living in, that house was built in part by slaves. >> bill: why is the first lady invoking images of slavery to make a point? we will tell you. >> we have a -- (bleep). >> bill: has madonna totally lost it? what the heck she talk being? we'll show you one of the most bizarre displays we've ever seen. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the fac
think that you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> and while the president took a shot at mitt romney over the economy, romney was hammering him over foreign policy. insisting the president's comments about bumps in the road in the middle east were out of line. >> these are developments we do not want to see. >> i want to bring in my fan tak fan takes sick panel, andrea mitchell, jamie rubin and "time" magazine's editor-at-large. good to see all of you. an dra dree arlet me have you s the stage. >> the president will give a tough speech, he'll say containment is not an option regarding iran. but these are words will be contradicted by the fact that he's leaving so quickly and by the criticism that he's not meeting with foreign leaders. i think they could have made the argument that he's not going to be here when netanyahu arrives for thursday's speech, but to say that he's not going to meet with president morsi who has been giving very interesting interviews and is really at an infliction point, leaving that to the secretary of state, this is the first time
up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control
terrorist threat we face. >> gregg: governor romney went on to criticize the president for turning down a face-to-face meeting with netanyahu while netanyahu visited the u.s. at the u.n. general assembly. >>> radical islamic groups, more than 15,000 flooding the streets in karachi, pakistan, demanded expulsion of the u.s. ambassador because of the film insuiting prophet mohammed. despite no protesters having seen the movie only those with access to youtube could see the trailer to the film. religious students and clerics protesting in tehran. they held up copies of the qur'an and chanted "death to america." the iranian government blocked all access to youtube after the trailer hit the internet. >> gregg: u.s. embassy in egypt reporting new security threat, message on is website says, the embassy has credible information suggesting terrorist' interests in targeting u.s. female missionaries in egypt, accordingly u.s. citizens should exercise vigilant taking precautions to maintain personal security. >> heather: vice president biden and vice presidential nominee ryan are campaigning in key
it to happen but it hasn't come. that's why i think people are a lot of republicans are down cast. >> bill: i think it's because romney hasn't been forceful enough. last year -- last elections 61% 45%. romney is running better than mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience
through this before. there will be ups and downs. we know the news media is anxious to write the romney recovery and comeback story. we understand that first of all, we are not going to win background states by 10, 12 points. this race is going to tighten. we have built the presidential campaign with the belief it will come down to a few votes in a few states. the race will tighten. we do have an edge right now, and it's important to understand that the election is happening right now. people started voting in iowa this week. vote in ohio next week. we like what we're seeing in those numbers. we think we've got the numbers to win an election. but it is going to be exceedingly, you know, tough at the end here. we expect it to tighten. and so our entire campaign is built under the premise, listen, we got 53% of the vote in 2008 under ideal circumstances. we have expected this to be closer than 2008, and we expect to see this race tighten a little bit. >> i want to talk about the foreign policy crisis in libya and the fact that this administration has changed its tune when it comes to desc
and florida. according to "the washington post," president obama has a four-point lead over mitt romney in florida. four points down there in a very tough state. 51%,/47% for obama. in ohio, the president's lead is a more comfortable eight points. 52/44. that's dramatic. we have joining us -- let's take a look at that for a minute. howard fineman, thank you for joining us, and joe klein of "time" magazine. thank you. it strikes me the numbers i put out tonight, and i'm going to get all through them, shows a party obliterated to reality. she don't seem to watch the news. don't seem to know the huge fight that went on when we realized there was no weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that was the whole reality we lived in, the disillusionment on the right, the confusion in the middle, the anger on the left. they didn't even experience that period of time? >> well, chris, to put a charitably, i think the republican party today is the nostalgia party. that was my sense of it having kind of marinated in their world view down in tampa at the republican convention. they think of a simpler worl
think we should build the economy from the middle class out like the president does or the top down like mitt romney does? >> credit ben labolt, thanks for joining us today. >> thanks. >> we say good morning to our tuesday political power panel. leah henderson, ted devine, senior strategist for al gore and john kerry. eugene robinson wrote in "the washington post" the challenges facing mitt romney in this debate, but going specifically saying romney's task is more difficult. for the umpteenth time he has to introduce himself to the american people and erase all the impressions of the mitt romney we met earlier and reveal a coherent person, one voters can imagine as a leader. is this debate more romney against himself? critics paint him displaying this flaccid leadership. >> he has to present himself as a president who would represent all americans. he said that several times. he's practicing that debate line. here again, even when he engages with that comment, it reminds people of that 47% remark. you see him over the last couple of days. i think it was today there is an interview in the
president obama and mitt romney. today both candidates are hunkering down preparing for what could be a pivotal night. chuck todd is nbc's political director. he is in denver this morning where the debate will take place tomorrow. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. these candidates have each don four mock debates. they will each do one more today. it's more preparation than any two candidates have put into presidential debates in the modern era of presidential politics. >> i get the opportunity to introduce to you the next president of the united states governor mitt romney. >> mitt romney landed in colorado monday night with the endorsement of legend john elway. >> what an honor. what a welcome. what a colorado welcome. thank you so much. >> the governor's first and only event ahead of tomorrow's big presidential debate was at a packed air and space museum in denver. >> people want to know who's going to win, who is going to score the punches. in my view it's not so much winning or losing or even the people t president and myself. it's about something bigger than that
. the bold solutions. mitt romney has never once asked me to temper anything down. he said go out there and sell this. >> chris: you talk about the handwringerring. there was a report this weekend that you have been talking to conservative commentators and trying to get them to stay on board and not to jump ship and get too discouraged but in the course of the conversations you admitted the campaign has made missteps. question, what missteps? >> first of all, 47% mitt acknowledges himself. that was an inarticulate way of describing more people have become dependent on government because they have no opportunity. it was an inarticulate way to describe how we are trying to reduce dependency to get people off welfare and back to work. we had some missteps but at the end of the day the choice is cheer and we are giving people a clear choice. progrowth solutions for opportunity and upward mobility and a dynamic economy. you have the president promising basically four more years like the last four years of stag nation and dependency. we have not been able to frame that choice as clearly
